Get in tune for GDPR!

Posted on May 18, 2018

 

If you run a business, there are four letters you’re probably very tired of hearing. Not so at Engage Web though – we simply can’t get enough of GDPR!

It’s now just one week until the EU General Data Protect Regulation comes into effect, and all businesses need to make sure they are compliant. No doubt it’s a stressful situation for many, but if musicals have taught us anything, it’s that problems can be solved through the medium of song. That’s why we’ve put together a little ditty to help introduce clarity and fun to this rather dry and strenuous regulation. You should be able to work out the tune to sing it to, but here it is in case you struggle:

Young man, there’s no need to feel down
I said, young man, laws are coming around
I said, young man, now your data is sound
There’s no need to be unhappy

Young man, there’s a new EU law
I said, young man, that can keep you secure
You can read up, and if you know your rights
Many data points can be wiped

It’s fun to learn about GDPR
It’s fun to learn about GDPR
Erase everything people hold about you
You can take it all back, it’s true

It’s fun to learn about GDPR
It’s fun to learn about GDPR
You can opt out of mail, submit an access request
GDPR is just the best!

Young man, are you listening to me?
I said, young man, for a reasonable fee
You can make a range of data requests
Even if they are unfounded

No man does it all by himself
Every business must show wisdom and stealth
They need training for each member of staff
There are fines for non-compliance

It’s fun to learn about GDPR
It’s fun to learn about GDPR
Erase everything people hold about you
You can take it all back, it’s true

It’s fun to learn about GDPR
It’s fun to learn about GDPR
You can opt out of mail, submit an access request
GDPR is just the best!

Young man, I was once in your shoes
I said, I was scared of data misuse
I felt my stuff was all part of a scheme
Being used for marketing means

That’s when someone dispelled the myth
And said, young man, as of May 25th
There’s a new law called the GDPR
That has privacy at it’s heart

It’s fun to learn about GDPR
It’s fun to learn about GDPR
Erase everything people hold about you
You can take it all back, it’s true

It’s fun to learn about GDPR
It’s fun to learn about GDPR
You can opt out of mail, submit an access request
GDPR is just the best!

If that didn’t help, don’t worry, because Engage Web can! Your website, especially if it holds or passes data, needs to be GDPR compliant to avoid a potential fine. If you’re not sure whether it is, speak to our team today.
